We are a Sheffield based outdoor company teaching outdoors skills for the hill and the crag - but in particular we run Outdoor First Aid courses.

 

Also it might be worth noting we lead 6 free walking weekends in the Peak District each year and also run Challenge4Charity - a voluntary organised and not for profit sponsored walk - covering (up to) 50 miles inside one day. A bit insane - but amazingly good fun.

Walkers may be interested in a new rail service, based in Wirksworth, Derbyshire. Wirksworth is near the High Peak Trail.

 

You might also be interested in this article of mine, which has a few details about Wirksworth and the Ecclesbourne Valley.

A couple of suggested additions

 

Towsure also sell a selection of walking gear and clothing

 

MapMyWalk is a reasonable mapping tool - though I tend to use it more AFTER a walk to measure distance and height climbed, and to log walks I've done. There are also some mapped walks on there (some runs and some cycle routes too) around Sheffield

 

OpenStreetMap is useful too - a "wiki map" - though any routes planned on there should be double-checked as it's mapping's answer to wikipedia - someone COULD put incorrect information on there, by mistake or devilment

If you are planning to do some walking around Wirksworth and taking in the Ecclesbourne Railway and maybe Crich Tramway museum you could do a lot worse than plan an overnight stop here:
